A pair of Christian Louboutin pumps are the stuff of fashion fantasy, his most iconic models, even more so. London's Design Museum drops its retrospective on over 200 of the designer's past designs from as far back as the brand's beginnigs in the early Nineties. At the centre of the exhibition is a mockup of Louboutin's Paris atelier with a table covered in paints, sketches and shoes as well as his trapeze hanging in the corner of the room.

“I just wanted to share this little part of the behind the scenes, which is actually a big pleasure in my work,” Louboutin told press at the launch of the exhibit which was attended by the glam likes of Dita Von Teese. The exhibit runs until July 9, our favourite part of the museum - the gift shop has some nifty Louboutin-themed goodies to snag while it's on.
